Waste2Wear understands that traceability and transparency are critical for producing genuinely sustainable products.
That’s why we have created our patent-pending blockchain, which won the 2021 Sustainability Leaders, World Sustainability Award in the sustainable supply chain category.
In an era where consumers are increasingly conscious about the origins and impact of the products they buy, understanding a product’s journey from creation to consumption is as vital as the product itself. Our blockchain technology provides this much-needed transparency for brands & consumers alike.
Our commitment to traceability extends to the very beginning of the product’s life. We work closely to ensure that the post-consumer materials we use are responsibly sourced.
This includes verifying their compliance with social and environmental standards and using geo-location tracking to confirm the origin of materials.
Our blockchain technology isn’t just a digital paper trail. Instead, we use physical tools such as locks, keys, and stickers to secure and verify each step of the supply chain. Scanned QR codes and barcodes provide access to this information, blending digital and physical elements to ensure the integrity of our process.
With each scan of a QR code on our products, we open a window into a journey of transformation, from waste to final product, all while allowing consumers to verify the environmental and social integrity of their purchases. Brands receive a detailed journey of each step in the supply chain, while consumers receive key highlights of the journey & environmental impact.
Welcome to a world of Verified Traceability, which allows us to create textile products that don’t just look good, they do good.
